About meI'm a historian of science with particular interests in early modern astronomy and cosmology, scientific instruments, history of the book, historiography, and history of collecting, museums and display. The work section of my library also reflects my more general teaching: early modern European history and the science and technology of warfare.

About my libraryConsists of my work library (see above), good modern fiction, some classics, run of the mill crime fiction and speculative fiction that ranges from the truly shocking to the superior.
